Women for Women International UK

Helping women survivors of war to rebuild their lives and create sustainable change for their families and communities.

Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    In countries affected by war and conflict, Women for Women International supports the most marginalised women to earn and save money, improve health and wellbeing, influence decisions in their home and community, and connect with networks for support. By utlising skills, knowledge, and resources, she is able to create sustainable change for herself, her family and community.

    We currently operate in 8 countries worldwide: Afghanistan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Rwanda, South Sudan, and Nigeria. We are also running a pilot programme for Syrian refugees in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

  • Aims

    Women for Women International UK aims to:

    • Women have a voice in family and community decisions: Studies show that women exercise greater decision-making power within their families when they are educated and earn a stable income.
    • Women have networks and safety nets: As program participants, women learn the importance of working together. By working in groups, they also benefit from a support system and social networks.
    • Women are Well: They have access to affordable and accessible healthcare – as well as training in disease prevention which significantly reduces preventable deaths.
    • Women can sustain an Income: Women contribute to economic stability. When women earn an income, they reinvest a much higher portion in their families and communities compared to men.
